This work represents weaving, which is one of the oldest art forms in the world.
Weaving expresses our cultural identity and traditions that date back many
thousands of years. Our ancient art of weaving has been used to create food tools, baskets, fishing nets and skin cloaks for warmth. Ceremonial and traditional objects are made from plant materials gathered from the bush or string made from animal and human hair. The various grasses and leaves are stripped into ideal widths, then softened by soaking them in water or by drawing them through hot ashes. Plants, bulbs and leaves required for different weaving methods are collected at specific times of year. Our dilly bags, containers, floor mats and rope are expertly made, showing the skill that has been passed on by women for over a thousand generations.

Too early to swim. Another gift to a bloke this time. You know this reminded me of walking on Town Beach at Nhulunbuy 40 years ago. There were thousands of little clear crabs running over the sand. Very beautiful pattern. Thanks for your creativity. Five stars!
Gave it to a friend, a white champion for First Nations issues, explaining the story. Too cold to swim yet, but so beautiful.
What a remarkably pretty, pretty towel. It is too cold to go swimming yet, so I have not used it yet. I gave this one to a friend, explained that the binding explained the First Nations pattern and story
I bought two of these as a gift for a friend and they were most suitable.
